Please help to understand student loans, grants, etc

I heard that one can't get any grants, or other free money until the family contributes $8k. What if the family does not contribute can the student apply for unsubsidized loans? Also are those automatic loans to full time students or is it like applying for a regular loan and FICO and credit scores apply. What are other options for someone wanting to attend school with limited income? Please help to understand student loans, grants, etc. Thank you in advance.

Speaking of Alumni

HUGE Experiences is an incredible program, and an opportunity to discover one's own true potential as an individual in paddlesports. The coaching is exceptional, and the comraderie of the athletes keeps it fun.

The first summer I joined HUGE Experiences, I did the Colorado Tour as well as U.S. Team Trials in Canada, where 9 of 10 Jr. U.S. Team Members were from HUGE Experiences. At the Rock Island, TN training program we had the opportunity to go through rigorous training, weight lifting, and travel days to the Ocoee in preparation for the World Championships in Graz, Austria in 2003. This was the first season HUGE Experiences became an academy, and it has developed into an a school with the potential to accomodate the most enthused kayakers and academically proficient students. Thanks to an incredible group of coaches and athletes, HUGE Experiences is an academy that is shaping the culture and lifestyle of kayaking.

Good luck to those who try out for the scholarships, in your own kayaking, and in HUGE Experiences if you win!
